Artificial Intelligence in Infrastructure Construction
Virtual conference presents latest developments from research and practice (Please note that the conference will be in German)
Munich, Germany, October 19, 2023 - ALLPLAN, global provider of BIM solutions for the AEC industry, will host a virtual conference dedicated to Artificial Intelligence (AI) in Infrastructure Construction on November 21. Attendees will learn how AI-based solutions help achieve maximum efficiency along the planning process - from as-built data collection to high-precision replacement planning in infrastructure projects.
What will traffic route planning of the future look like with AI? This is the question addressed by the virtual conference, which is aimed at planners in infrastructure construction. "AI has the potential to help experts accelerate planning and construction processes of infrastructure structures, extend their useful life and improve sustainability. It enables data-based maintenance management, which further increases the reliability of transport and energy infrastructure," says Stefan Kaufmann, Product Manager BIM and New Technologies at ALLPLAN.
In four exciting lectures, experts from research and practice will present the latest developments and innovations in artificial intelligence. Prof. Dr.-Ing. Markus König from the Ruhr University Bochum will present results of the BIMKIT project on as-built modeling of buildings and infrastructure structures using AI. Felix Kretschmann, Senior Product Manager at the AI startup elevait, talks about current projects in the field of machine learning in infrastructure construction. With in:plans, elevait is developing software that can sustainably optimize inventory data management through AI-based knowledge extraction from plans.
Dr. Veit Appelt, Managing Director of A+S Consult, will demonstrate the use of multidimensional parametric BIM models in route planning for road, rail and energy. In addition to a holistic planning approach for above-ground and underground infrastructure structures, the Korfin software offers extensive evaluations and analyses. The conference program will be rounded off by a presentation by Gregor Strekelj, Product Manager Infrastructure Construction at ALLPLAN, who will talk about parametric 4D models in infrastructure planning. The focus of his presentation will be Allplan Bridge, which sustainably increases efficiency in structural engineering through its innovative planning technology based on parametric models.
All presentations will take place in a compact time slot between 3 and 4.30 pm.
